We discovered sushi in the mid 80' in California and since then we have had much sushi. I can honestly say that Joss serves the freshest, tastiest sushi. I have been a regular customer for many years and every meal I have had was just delicious. Our last time there, my husband and I started with a Magura Poke and... More

Terrible establishment. My wife & I never got seated. They kept seating parties with more than 2 ahead of us. When asked if they had reservations, the hostess said, "No, they have more people in their party than you."

We stumbled into this restaurant after deciding we didn't really want to eat much again as we had had a load of crabs for lunch. It was delightful. Very good selection of Japanese dishes. Lovely fresh sushi and sashimi.

Great restaurant. Been going here for over 20 yrs. Owners are nice and the sushi and sashimi is very consistent. The chesapeake roll is my favorite. The sukiyaki is excellent too. Won't be disappointed. They don't take reservations is the only downer. Need to go early or late if you don't like to wait like me

Joss has been on my "go to list" for longer then I can remember. Food always fresh and well presented; old stand byes stay on the menu but new, interesting items always appear. Sushi is outstanding but cooked selections are equally appealing. Wait staff is knowledgeable and attentive. If you want Japanese food Joss is a must

Joss Café always has great food and a VERY GOOD selection to choose from. The lunch specials are great also. The service is to be noted as the ENTIRE staff will thank you as well as greet you with OIYYYY. Not sure the spelling there...but a great place to visit while here in Annapolis.
